Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Uncle Bill was kind to our family. He came when our father, his brother Roy, passed. And after that he would phone my sister Lorna, around Christmas time to get the news about how we all were doing, and to share how the rest of his family were doing. It was a sad day when we heard about his passing. We will miss the connection with him. If I can wish anything for you Dear Bill is that you, my Dad and Ernie are together getting up to some shenanigans. Blessings to you and the family. - Posted by: Donna "Freckles" Naven (Niece) on: Jun 06, 2018

  • Uncle Bill was truly a good and gracious man. He was always warm and welcoming when we met. Always pleased to see us and I have never heard him say an unkind word. We will miss him and always keep him in our prayers. - Posted by: LARRY and KATHY NAVEN (Nephew and his wife) on: May 17, 2018
